The IFI provides a unique cultural offering and dynamic environment for our Corporate Members. Annual IFI Corporate Membership is flexible and scalable, and provides excellent value across client entertaining, staff engagement and bespoke events.
The Irish Film Institute is the home of cinema in Ireland – a charity with a mission to exhibit, educate and preserve film for everyone. Film has the power to excite, entertain and challenge and is the most popular cultural activity in Ireland.
Our Corporate Members are a valued community that join us to support our work and unlock an exciting range of attractive benefits to engage staff and clients. As a registered charity and not-for-profit, your support enables the Irish Film Institute to develop and deliver our non-commercial activities, including our education programme for young people and the preservation of Ireland’s national film archive. Annual IFI Corporate Membership provides excellent value across client entertaining, staff engagement, business development opportunities, and bespoke events. We work closely with each of our IFI Corporate Members to design partnerships that suit their specific needs.
You can find comprehensive details on our Corporate Memberships below. Once you have reviewed those details email a member of our Development Team or call 01 612 9456 to discuss your requirements further.

Staff Engagement & Client Entertaining
Corporate Membership offers the opportunity to host private screenings and unique client experiences.

We’re happy to discuss customised ideas and work with social committees to get the most from your package.
IFI Corporate Membership uniquely enables individual members of your staff to join and avail of IFI Membership benefits throughout the year, independently, with the advantage of additional discounts – an easy way to thank staff for their hard-work and contributions to the organisation’s success.
Tax Relief Benefits
The IFI is an approved body for tax relief: Your company may claim a deduction from their Corporate Membership donation rate as if it were a trading expense or an expense of management. You can read more on it at the Revenue’s website here.
Diversity and Inclusion
As well as championing many accessible screenings at the IFI, film itself can act as an easy conduit into difficult subject matter. Often a key area of consideration for many HR policy agendas, through our Diversity and Inclusion programme, IFI can curate a programme to help our members to act on their internal agendas.
Corporate members are welcome to volunteer throughout the year (especially during our Festival Seasons), with opportunities that can be tailored to suit your specific needs and CSR objectives. Benefits include team building, increased staff morale and attending unique cinematic experiences (one-off screenings, guest Q&As, curated festivals, industry events, IFI’s annual Open Day, and more!). General duties include ushering, market research, counting vote-ballets and helping out wherever needed.
In 2019, The Irish Film Institute and Axonista together won ‘Best Creative Staff Engagement’ at the Allianz Business to Art Awards.
